as were boats or whether there is a bounty on his head the ukrainian military don't. according to kiev graham has been deported for quote national security and territorial integrity concerns that reasoning is something that geo political analyst patrick henningsen well he's not buying it i think they're very nervous in the ukraine because they do not want information to escape the type of information that graham phillips is reporting about the true nature of the conflict what we have is clearly a civil war by anyone's definition except for the western media and politicians in europe in the united states are still calling it as as the government in kiev is an anti terror operation meanwhile civilians are being targeted that's the very thing that they're graham phillips is trying to relate to the world i think the policy. of transparency is something they're clearly not very good at it's been hiding in

kiev has used banned white phosphorous bombs during its latest shelling they posted this video of the alleged attack online which is so far it has not been independently verified moscow says it has proof that kiev has used incendiary bombs on at least six different locations and russia's defense ministry claims there were a number of indicators which are characteristic of phosphorus forms a kiev denying all allegations earlier we called the thoughts of former british army officer charles hsu bridge. shows many of the characteristics one would associate with white phosphorus use in particular it looks like it's an air device that's to say it's been delivered by mortars or artillery or props in aircraft it covers quite some substantial areas you can see by the time it reaches the ground and also you've got this very characteristic. features of breaking into very small very bright burning particles which as indeed military spokespeople elsewhere have commented upon in their right to to say that it falls very quickly to the ground
12:40 am
this is a fear some device white phosphorus will burn it intense heat will burn right through to the bone it's it can't be put out by using water and if civilians are in the air it's all my sense of course widespread damage as well as fear and of course very serious injuries if it can be proved that white phosphorus has been used against either civilian targets or in an area where it's very likely civilians will be harmed there could well be repercussions in terms of crimes actions for example ukraine is indeed a signatory to the convention the u.n. convention which governs the use of incendiary weapons. and following the lead of the united states the european union has expanded its sanctions against russia over the ukrainian crisis brussels i did fifteen people in eighteen firms to its blacklist the measures include visa bans and asset freezes and further restrictions

what i think is happening in the west is sad people essentially believing in this world when they believe that you know that me to comprehend fair and objective. they simply don't realize when propaganda is being pointed down we need to go by you know beyond that and actually gauge with the ideas in the information that is presented as well and confront that information and i think that's something that as you mentioned before not everything is black and white not everything isn't taken istic and the more that we can be i guess an open open minded con a source of information regardless of the source i think we're all going to be the . lead. government system is to help poor people poor women but they're going to change their life and nobody's trying to make money out of them those who want to make
